We completed our final peak #sangorgonio in our #2107 #sixpackofpeaks challenge. This beast took us 11 hours and was 22 miles roundtrip. We went up to 11,500 elevations via #southforktrail in #angelusoaks #california. The elevation gain was 4858. This is the highest peak in all of #southerncalifornia. We opted for this trail over Vivian Creek due to the elevation. We decided we could go longer miles easier than the steep incline since we were both coming off bronchitis and being sick for a few weeks. We started at 7:10 am and ended at 6:35 pm. We did stop for lunch and spent about 30 minutes chilling on the peak enjoying the unparalleled views atop and another snack before the long hike back. It seemed like the trail would never end. It just kept going and going and going. Absolutely epic day and grateful to explore these epic journeys with the one I love #shawnbrown and great friends #reneedelbarba. #Alltrails said it was 18.8 miles but we both GPS it at 22 miles Round Trip. #daniwalker #danilynwalker #socalhiker #killinit #californiahikers, #optoutside #viewfromthetop #blessed #neverstopexploring #sticktogetherinloveforever
